Happy NIИ Day
The new Nine Inch Nails record, With Teeth comes out today. It was leaked on the Internet, in full, sometime over the last few weeks, but I have been a good doobie and not listened. It was also available via a number of audio streaming services for at least a week, and I haven’t listened to those either. Oh, aren’t I exactly the kind of fan artists love?
Well, as the result of my good behavior, I now have no idea when I’ll actually get to listen to the damn thing.
Sure, I could pick it up today. But, by the time I get home tonight, it’ll be time to cook dinner and then I’ll just be plain tuckered out. I could listen in the car on the way home, but the whole point of waiting was so that I could get the 5.1 mix of the album and listen to it on my home stereo.
Before we go on: Yes, I realize this is a stupid thing to be complaining about when there are children starving in Africa, but this is my webpage, not theirs. If the starving African children want to bitch about their hunger, let them get their own fucking website. Blogger is free, you know.
Anyway, I want the new album now. I want to be in my living room, blasting the fucking stereo so loud that my wife threatens to divorce me and the neighbors start banging on the windows with their shotguns. (Everyone in New Hampshire has a shotgun, you see.)
There, I feel better.
